Did you really just put a Night in Sickbay on the best of season 2 list?
As critical as I am of many of the episodes, you really do get the most of the experience by watching them all. And season 3 has it's flaws too, so don't look to that as a game saver. If you made it through season 1, season 2... has a few more better episodes. Some of which Gaith listed. Really though, it may require sifting through a few more crappy epsidoes, but you don't miss out on the nuggets that are there. Even the bad episodes have their good moments.
